What You'll Need:
-A polish of decent contrast to your base color (I chose Essie Navigate Her over Funky Fingers Kelly.)
-A dotting tool
-Something to practice on (I use paper plates or the back of older Bundle Monster Plates, before they put the backing on them.)
-Acetone to clean off your dotting tool in case it gets goopy
-Something to wipe your dotting too off on (I use cotton rounds, but they can shred. A paper towel would work.)
What You Do:
Make sure your current manicure is dry. It helps if you've already put your topcoat on and had that set, too. If you mess up and have your topcoat on, sometimes you can swipe off your oopsie without damaging the base color.
4. I really didn't know how to photograph step four since its a motion, but all you do is use the dotting tool to kind of push the polish into the center to fill in the space while keeping in mind what a shamrock looks like.
5. Use your dotting tool, you may need to re-dip to get more polish for this, to make a tiny little line at the bottom of the shamrock for the stem.
As you can see in the very first picture with my dotting tool and acetone glass, you need to practice it a few times to get it down. Practice, in my case, didn't make perfect but it made "good enough", haha. Given the fact you'll probably be using greens and it is nearly St. Patrick's Day, even a rough shamrock should be a discernible one!
Since I'm not so good at this, I only used one for my manicure as an accent nail.
